    Match Report by Mike Payne

 

    Match Report by Norman Giller

Ramsey experimented with a new left wing partnership of Terry Venables and Alan Hinton against a Belgian side that included eight players from their league champions Anderlecht. It was Hinton whose shot was deflected into the net for an equalizing goal in the seventieth minute. For Venables, selection completed a unique collection of England caps at all levels – schools, youth, amateur, Under-23 and full. Belgian playmaker Jurion was the first captain to skipper a side at Wembley wearing spectacles. If there had been any justice, the superbly organized Belgians would have become the third overseas side to beat England at Wembley. They had the best player on the pitch in Paul Van Himst, an artist of an attacking footballer who was always a thought and a deed ahead of the England defenders.
